Hey guys,

I'm looking to upgrade my mum's stock phone.
I previously updated her phone via this thread:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1915386

But it seems that the dev is no longer active on that font.
From what I can see on Sammobile the latest FW is:
N7100XXUEMK9

Which is for a UK - BTU phone.
My mum is currently on:
N7100XXDME6_N7100OXXDME2_N7100XXDME4_BTU

Thus ME6 based on 4.1.2.

I was thinking of putting her on 4.3.
I don't want to wipe her phone, nor want her to have any problems - thus I want to leave her on as STOCK as possible.
Just rooted is a privilege (or else I can manually root it somehow) - I only use root on her phone to TB backup - just in case all goes pear shaped.
The reason I want to leave her on stock - is in case she has problems whilst I'm away + she doesn't really need any fancy features or kernels that allow her to OC etc.

I also thought to ask before going in blindly and upgrading her phone.
I'm not at all in the help with the Note2 roms. Thus would appreciate some help in that respect.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Hi I suggest installing this 4.3 ROM:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2595963

It is pre-rooted Stock ROM, one of the latest releases from Samsung. I run it myself, smooth and flawless. No bells or whistles.

But first I suggest you upgrade her bootloader via PC Odin to MJ5, which you will find link in DRKetan's thread, for his V6 ROM. This will ensure no FC or wifi problems.

Best of luck mate

Yes wifi patch is an option if using an older bootloader. I used it for a while but encountered some app FC, freezing of the phone. After upgrading to MJ5 bootloader, all problems went away.
